A documentary about the upheavals in the making of Andrzej Zulawski's film that was arguably the first Polish mega science fiction production.
The year 1975. After a few years of forced immigration, the young director Andrzej Zulawski returns to Poland. His situation in Poland is uncertain. What's worse, his family disintegrates: his wife Malgorzata Braunek files for divorce. To strengthen his position Zulawski takes on a titanic task: he plans to make On the Silver Globe, a science fiction epic and the biggest film in the history of the Polish cinema. If he succeeds, he'll win his place in the pantheon of the Polish directors. If he fails, his career in Poland will be over.
A movie about the upheavals in the making of a film that was arguably the first Polish mega science fiction production. Featuring photos from the original film set, archival material as well as interviews with Polish filmmakers, journalists, actors and critics, the documentary aims to provide a holistic historical perspective on a complex moment in the historiography of Polish cinema.
